Over the past weeks I decided to taste my way around the world of Sauvignon Blanc wines. Overall, I was extremely pleased with what I tasted, showing that you rarely go wrong with a Sauvignon Blanc. That said, I did taste some that were over-worked, viscous, too-sweet on-the-finish, and overly alcoholic. Once again Chile seems to top in terms of value, with lots of refreshing and juicy examples for around $10. Bordeaux also offers excellent value with many wines tasted under $15.
I did not include New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc this time, as I have covered these wines in an earlier post.
